Product Description

This collection of lyrical and narrative poems, establishes Bruce Bond as one of the finest mid-career American poets. Bond's poetry speaks to themes as varied and timeless as the American Civil War, Narcissus, Abraham and Isaac, and the paintings of Caravaggio and Edward Hopper. Anthony Hecht says: "There is a genuine warmth, a real drama and imaginative wit in these accounts of the life of the mind, the senses and the body's mysterious ways."


Issac


There are mountains, ask any believer,
where to wake suddenly is to risk
your life, where the spirit cold and fevered
would burn like rope in the body's fist,
so when I woke under the winter sky
last night, startled by the copper bell
of a goat above me, the way its eye
met mine I took it for a man or angel
or some such frightened thing.  Like me it
darted backwards, tightening the thread
of sight between us.  And so I slipped
a little farther out of sleep, my head
aching, my father mumbling where he lay,
one wakeful star above us like a blade.
